The Lyrics

when good friday comes
the crowd is gonna roar
i'll be nailed to the cross till my hands and feet are sore

when good friday comes
i will die for the sin that's owed
and when all my friends find out, riots will explode

when good friday comes, looks like the end of me
the man from galilee

when good friday comes
the disciples will be shook
they will scribble down all my words to create "the good book"

though i'm filled with much unease
it just ain't my place to choose
as king of the jews, its my life that i must lose

when good friday comes, i'll be on that hill
my role fulfilled

when good friday comes
to my tomb, i'm gonna roll
gonna lay down in it till my dad jump-starts my soul

tom can put his hand inside me
i'll ask peter why he thrice, denied me
and since i died on the cross, they need to write some scrolls

when good friday comes, i'll stake my claim to fame
they won't forget my name

Alvin, Jesus! What a sharp parody. You really nailed this one!!! Your protagonist sounds kinda prophetic. All sacriligiousness aside, great job....I can remember the SONGS that are on this album but not the Album title...let's see...Dr. Wu, Any World That I'm Welcome To....Chain Lightning....Bad Sneakers (maybe that's not a title, but it is a lyric)...aahhh...shoot,...what's the title of the one that goes..."throw back the little ones, and pan-fry the big ones...."??? ....Oh,. Sh*t, the album is...You, know I think I need more sleep...WAIT, I'VE GOT IT. It's also a song title, "KATY LIED"!!! But I still need more sleep. Don't remember if I voted here, uhh.yeah I did, it only had 2 before. I'll double-check but I'm pretty sure I was the 3rd. later....

Hey folks, by the way, if you know this Steely Dan original song you should check this parody out. It's exceptionally well-written. I already "five'd" it this morning but I was sort of in a daze and came back to re-read it because I wanted to remember how it went. The parody "story" is one most of you are probably at least noddingly familiar with.
